Stanley Robotics is reinventing parking at France's Lyon Saint Exupéry airport, offering customers a lower-cost option and using parking spaces more efficiently

French robotics company Stanley Robotics is bringing its self-driving robots to Lyon-Saint-Exupéry airport in southeastern France as a valet service. Referred to in short as the “Stan service,” the valet consists of a fleet of self-driving forklifts that transport travelers' cars to their parking destination.

The robots work by lifting cars from their spaces in the hangar, where they are scanned for make and model, and then carrying them away to a designated space. The use of autonomous aid will allow the airport to use its parking spaces more efficiently, as the Stans are able to utilize up to 50% more space, tracking the duration of the cars' stay to optimize organization.

The Stan service lot is the cheapest valet service at Lyon-Saint-Exupéry airport. Stanely Robotics already tested its services out at the Düsseldorf and Charles De Gaulle airports, and has plans to run a trial at Gatwick in London.
